But God

Today makes a week. I’d like to say that I’m doing great but that wouldn’t be the truth. It’s a battle each morning to get out of bed and continue on my daily activities. My heart is sad and I seem to fight that feeling all day. I am so thankful for James and how he has held me this past week. He has to tell me all throughout the day that “we will be ok.”  
James reads the kids a devotional each night. A few nights ago this particular devotion pricked my heart. 

The title was “But God” 

Those words “but God” shows up in the Bible 3,930 times! When life doesn’t turn out like you’ve planned or even dreamed. When it seems like your world is crumbling around. When your heart literally feels like it is tearing into. We see that God is our strength and hope. 

-“But God remembered”

-“But God showed”

-“But God whispered” 

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, BUT GOD is the strength of my heart. 

So am I ok? I can’t answer yes…but I can say God is my strength and He is still good.
